The Seabillys play traditional Celtic music and inspired original tunes with classic Canadian/American folk/pop/bluegrass added in. This band features rich vocal harmonies, lively rhythms and fun solos to keep their crowds clapping, stomping and singing along.
Dan Beer on acoustic guitar & cowbell, and Mark Messcu keeps things steady on standup bass . Kat Goheen plays violin & bodhr√°n, Brian Best on banjitar, harmonica & guitar. All sing. You can’t help but smile, stomp and sing along. AND The Seabillys donate a portion of their pay to charity.
Dan is a singer songwriter rhythm guitar player who loves uptempo beats, singing harmonies, and having fun with his bandmates and the audience.

Kat combines her classical training and American roots to add a sparkle to the Seabillys set list. She loves writing tunes for the group and sharing new riffs on her fiddle, and beats on her bodhr√°n.
Mark weaves his deep roots of bluegrass bass with the beating wave rhythms of the Seabillys’ originals, covers, Celtic airs and spirited sea songs.
